When the LlaMA had to pull the SBDs, one source I never got was the updated
multiple SBD source (shnid=21727) that included the first set. Also mentioned
is the Scott Jones AUD which runs through Jack-a-roe but is not listed in the
db, and I have not seen either source circulate as of late (hint hint). If
both sources surface I can then put together the first set as well, so for
now this fileset is Sick Bits Vol. 16a and the first set would be Vol. 16b
(I'm naming this fileset "a" hoping that there will be a "b").
This SBD is not that bad (fast though), but Jerry's tone gets very big when
coupled with the added dimension of the AUD, which, all in all, is fairly
decent for the time period. The SBD has some holes and finally cuts for
good before the Playin' Reprise.
The first set is about 76 mins. in length whereas this second set is about 65
mins. without an encore. One of the strangest second sets in terms of format,
song selection, and plain old jamming - they essentially start with Space and
play two distinctive jams (the second with Jerry using the Mutron) sandwiched
around Drumz before finally settling into Jack A Roe, a 17 month rezi, 8th
time played, only version of 1978, and only version which involves a segue.
After they stop playing after the Jack A Roe (the only break in the set),
Weir can clearly be heard on the SBD laying out the sequence: Playin >
Shakedown > World To Give > Playin (it's unclear if he mentions Round & Round)
- so this is very much planned, most likely because this is only the 5th
Shakedown (no reprise) and the third and final If I Had The World To Give.
Also, according to those that were there, Weir was ill for the early part of
this set, so they opened with "jam".
Thanks to whomever recorded the AUD, to Rob Bertrando for converting it to
digital, and Darrin Sacks for encoding and seeding it. Since the SBD source
is a mystery, thanks to all of you who had a hand in the lineage.
